The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) in the United Kingdom has accused Yunnik Technologies Test Centre in Ibadan, Nigeria, of fraudulent activity during a computer-based test for nurses and midwives seeking to practice in the UK. According to a press statement by NMC Chief Executive and Registrar, Andrea Sutcliffe, there is evidence of widespread fraudulent activity at the Yunnik centre, leading to the invalidation of all test results from the site.
The NMC has stated that it cannot have confidence in any computer-based test (CBT) result from Yunnik and considers all those who sat for the exam at the site as invalid. As a result, these individuals will have to resit the exams. The NMC will provide them with three opportunities to do so. Sutcliffe emphasized the council’s commitment to protecting the public and maintaining the integrity of the nursing and midwifery profession.
Sutcliffe further explained that internationally educated nurses and midwives play a crucial role in the UK’s health and social care system. The NMC’s decision to invalidate all CBT results from Yunnik was taken to ensure the integrity of the register for nursing and midwifery professionals in the country. The council has approached the situation with meticulous care and consideration.
In unrelated news, a Nigerian nurse named Pius Quineth recently secured a visa and relocated to the UK to work with the National Health Service (NHS). Quineth described the decision to relocate as the biggest decision of her life. Another Nigerian nurse who pursued a career in Canada celebrated her success by purchasing a brand new Range Rover Velar car.
The NMC’s accusations of fraudulent activity at Yunnik Technologies Test Centre highlight the importance of maintaining the integrity of exams for nursing and midwifery professionals in the UK. The council’s decision to invalidate all CBT results from the centre underscores their commitment to protecting the public and ensuring the credibility of the profession. As the affected individuals are given the opportunity to resit the exams, the NMC aims to restore confidence in the register for nursing and midwifery professionals.
